2005-Jul-08: New Album Details

(Updated) Sir Paul has released the details of his new studio album, Chaos And Creation In The Back Yard, scheduled to be released on September 13. As in his first solo album, Sir Paul plays most of the instruments himself on the 13 tracks including guitar, bass, drums, flugelhorn, and harmonium. Sir Paul explained why he spent two years in recording studios in London and Los Angeles to record the album:

"I did not want to rush this album. I think it was worth the wait though. The music became more interesting over time and I'm really proud of what we did. We really made a lot of it up as we went along. I'd try something and if it didn't work I'd try something else until it did. It was like making a go-cart in the backyard."

Nigel Godrich, who co-produced the album with Sir Paul added:

"When Paul and I got together we had a common goal. We wanted to make a great album that was true to Paul. I think that's exactly what we did."

The album tracklist includes:

Fine Line (which Sir Paul describes as up-tempo piano-driven)
How Kind Of You
Jenny Wren
(which Sir Paul describes as daughter of Blackbird)
At The Mercy
Friends To Go
English Tea
Too Much Rain
A Certain Softness
